Phantom Limb: "amputation, Embodiment, And Prosthetic Technology"

Product : Phantom Limb: "amputation, Embodiment, And Prosthetic Technology"
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Phantom limb pain is one of the most intractable and merciless pains ever known—a pain that haunts appendages that do not physically exist, often persisting with uncanny realness long after fleshy limbs have been traumatically, surgically, or congenitally lost. The very existence and “naturalness” of this pain has been instrumental in modern science’s ability to create prosthetic technologies that many feel have transformative, self-actualizing, and even transcendent power. In Phantom Limb, Cassandra S. Crawford critically examines phantom limb pain and its relationship to prosthetic innovation, tracing the major shifts in knowledge of the causes and characteristics of the phenomenon. Crawford exposes how the meanings of phantom limb pain have been influenced by developments in prosthetic science and ideas about the extraordinary power of these technologies to liberate and fundamentally alter the human body, mind, and spirit. Through intensive observation at a prosthetic clinic, interviews with key researchers and clinicians, and an analysis of historical and contemporary psychological and medical literature, she examines the modernization of amputation and exposes how medical understanding about phantom limbs has changed from the late-19th to the early-21st century. Crawford interrogates the impact of advances in technology, medicine, psychology and neuroscience, as well as changes in the meaning of limb loss, popular representations of amputees, and corporeal ideology. Phantom Limb questions our most deeply held ideas of what is normal, natural, and even moral about the physical human body. Cassandra S. Crawford is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Northern Illinois University and a faculty associate in Women’s Studies and in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Studies.

Radicalism At The Crossroads: African American Women Activists In The Cold War

Product : Radicalism At The Crossroads: African American Women Activists In The Cold War
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : With the exception of a few iconic moments such as Rosa Parks’s 1955 refusal to move to the back of a Montgomery bus, we hear little about what black women activists did prior to 1960. Perhaps this gap is due to the severe repression that radicals of any color in America faced as early as the 1930s, and into the Red Scare of the 1950s. To be radical, and black and a woman was to be forced to the margins and consequently, these women’s stories have been deeply buried and all but forgotten by the general public and historians alike. In this exciting work of historical recovery, Dayo F. Gore unearths and examines a dynamic, extended network of black radical women during the early Cold War, including established Communist Party activists such as Claudia Jones, artists and writers such as Beulah Richardson, and lesser known organizers such as Vicki Garvin and Thelma Dale. These women were part of a black left that laid much of the groundwork for both the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and later strains of black radicalism. Radicalism at the Crossroads offers a sustained and in-depth analysis of the political thought and activism of black women radicals during the Cold War period and adds a new dimension to our understanding of this tumultuous time in United States history.

Jews And The Civil War: A Reader

Product : Jews And The Civil War: A Reader
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : At least 8,000 Jewish soldiers fought for the Union and Confederacy during the Civil War. A few served together in Jewish companies while most fought alongside Christian comrades. Yet even as they stood “shoulder-to-shoulder” on the front lines, they encountered unique challenges.In Jews and the Civil War, Jonathan D. Sarna and Adam Mendelsohn assemble for the first time the foremost scholarship on Jews and the Civil War, little known even to specialists in the field. These accessible and far-ranging essays from top scholars are grouped into seven thematic sections--Jews and Slavery, Jews and Abolition, Rabbis and the March to War, Jewish Soldiers during the Civil War, The Home Front, Jews as a Class, and Aftermath--each with an informative contextual introduction by the editors. Together they reappraise the impact of the war on Jews in the North and the South, offering a rich and fascinating portrait of the experience of Jewish soldiers and civilians from the home front to the battle front.

Feeling Global: Internationalism in Distress

Product : Feeling Global: Internationalism in Distress
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Is global culture merely a pale and sinister reflection of capitalist globalization? Bruce Robbins responds to this and other questions in Feeling Global, a crucial document on nationalism, culturalism, and the role of intellectuals in the age of globalization. Building on his previous work, Robbins here takes up the question of the status of international human rights. Robbins'' conception of internationalism is driven not only by the imperatives of global human rights policy, but by an understanding of transnational cultures, thus linking practical policymaking to cultural politics at the expense of neither. Robbins'' cultural criticism, in other words, affords us much more than an understanding of how culture shapes our lives. Instead, Robbins shows, particularly in his discussions of Martha Nussbaum, Richard Rorty, Susan Sontag, Michael Walzer and others, how culture itself has become a term that blocks--for commentators on both the right and the left--serious engagement with the contemporary cosmopolitan ideal of a nonuniversalist discourse of human rights. Rescuing cosmopolitanism itself from its connotations of leisured individuals loyal to no one and willing to sample all cultures at will, Feeling Global presents a compelling way to think about the ethical obligations of intellectuals at a time when their place in the new world order is profoundly uncertain.

Officers in Flight Suits: The Story of American Air Force Fighter Pilots in the Korean War

Product : Officers in Flight Suits: The Story of American Air Force Fighter Pilots in the Korean War
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The United States Air Force fought as a truly independent service for the first time during the Korean War. Ruling the skies in many celebrated aerial battles, even against the advanced Soviet MiG-15, American fighter pilots reigned supreme. Yet they also destroyed virtually every major town and city in North Korea, demolished its entire crop irrigation system and killed close to one million civilians. The self-confidence and willingness to take risks which defined the lives of these men became a trademark of the fighter pilot culture, what author John Darrell Sherwood here refers to as the flight suit attitude. In Officers in Flight Suits, John Darrell Sherwood takes a closer look at the flight suit officer''s life by drawing on memoirs, diaries, letters, novels, unit records, and personal papers as well as interviews with over fifty veterans who served in the Air Force in Korea. Tracing their lives from their training to the flight suit culture they developed, the author demonstrates how their unique lifestyle affected their performance in battle and their attitudes toward others, particularly women, in their off-duty activities.

Saving Face: Disfigurement And The Politics Of Appearance

Product : Saving Face: Disfigurement And The Politics Of Appearance
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Imagine yourself without a face—the task seems impossible. The face is a core feature of our physical identity. Our face is how others identify us and how we think of our ‘self’. Yet, human faces are also functionally essential as mechanisms for communication and as a means of eating, breathing, and seeing. For these reasons, facial disfigurement can endanger our fundamental notions of self and identity or even be life threatening, at worse. Precisely because it is so difficult to conceal our faces, the disfigured face compromises appearance, status, and, perhaps, our very way of being in the world.In Saving Face, sociologist Heather Laine Talley examines the cultural meaning and social significance of interventions aimed at repairing faces defined as disfigured. Using ethnography, participant-observation, content analysis, interviews, and autoethnography, Talley explores four sites in which a range of faces are “repaired:” face transplantation, facial feminization surgery, the reality show Extreme Makeover, and the international charitable organization Operation Smile,. Throughout, she considers how efforts focused on repair sometimes intensify the stigma associated with disfigurement. Drawing upon experiences volunteering at a camp for children with severe burns, Talley also considers alternative interventions and everyday practices that both challenge stigma and help those seen as disfigured negotiate outsider status.Talley delves into the promise and limits of facial surgery, continually examining how we might understand appearance as a facet of privilege and a dimension of inequality. Ultimately, she argues that facial work is not simply a conglomeration of reconstructive techniques aimed at the human face, but rather, that appearance interventions are increasingly treated as lifesaving work. Especially at a time when aesthetic technologies carrying greater risk are emerging and when discrimination based on appearance is rampant, this important book challenges us to think critically about how we see the human face.

Marriage Proposals: Questioning a Legal Status

Product : Marriage Proposals: Questioning a Legal Status
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The essays in Marriage Proposals envision a variety of scenarios in which adults would continue to join themselves together seeking permanent companionship and sustenance, linking sexual intimacy to a long commitment, usually caring for each other, and building new families. What would disappear are the legal consequences associated with marriage. No joint income tax return; no immigration privileges like the “fiancée visa” or the right to bring in a husband or wife; no special statuses for prison visits or hospital decisions; no prerogative to remain silent in court by claiming “confidential marital communications”; no pension entitlements; no marital benefits and detriments regarding criminal or civil liability.The anthology makes a unique contribution amid the two marriage furors of the day: same-sex marriage and the Bush Administration''s “marriage movement” (that marrying is good and more marriages would be better for society). Abolishing the legal category of marriage is the only policy suggestion in current American discourse that speaks to both causes. Activists on both sides of the same-sex marriage fight, along with marriage movement partisans, all seek improvement through law reform. Marriage Proposals gives them a viable reform—abolition of marriage as a legal status—for fighting battles in the courtroom and the streets.Contributors include Anita Bernstein, Peggy Cooper Davis, Martha Albertson Fineman, Linda C. McClain, Marshall Miller, Lawrence Rosen, Mary Lyndon Shanley, and Dorian Solot.

The Fate of American Poetry

Product : The Fate of American Poetry
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature>Literary Theory and Criticism
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Are we witnessing the death of American poetry? Many critics have charged as much, pointing to a poetry that is increasingly marginal, specialized, and cloistered. Challenging such doomsayers, Jonathan Holden offers a hopeful appraisal of the current state of American poetry. Examining the reasons behind the loss of readership and diminished status of poetry in America, Holden blames the advent of modernism and the institutionalization of the modernist tradition in university English departments. Although in many ways the American university's overwhelming support of poetry has left the art more vigorous than ever, it has also encouraged a mass production of mediocre verse.Holden contends that the best postwar American poets have shed the elitist vestiges of modernism and have enlarged both the capabilities of poetry and its appeal to a general audience by incorporating subject matter formerly confined to other genres. In discussing contemporary poems Holden illustrates how American poetry, by including a more diverse subject matter, can assert some just claim to a wider audience-a literate audience of nonspecialists.

Black Literature and Humanism in Latin America

Product : Black Literature and Humanism in Latin America
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In Black Literature and Humanism in Latin America, Richard L. Jackson explores literary Americanism through writings of black Hispanic authors such as Carlos Guillermo Wilson, Quince Duncan, and Nelson Estupiñán Bass that in many ways provide a microcosm for the larger literature. Jackson traces the roots of Afro-Hispanic literature from the early twentieth-century Afrocriollo movement--the Harlem Renaissance of Latin America--to the fiction and criticism of black Latin Americans today. Black humanism arose from Afro-Hispanics' self-discovery of their own humanity and the realization that over the years they had become not only defenders of threatened cultures but also symbolic guardians of humanity. This humanist tradition had enabled writers such as Manuel Zapata Olivella to write of a Latin America from below the slave-ship deck and from inside the mind of Africa.Though many writers have adopted black literary models in their quest for a poetry of sources, of fundamental human values, Jackson demonstrates that literature about blacks by blacks themselves is clearly separate from, yet instrumental to, these other works. Relating the vision of Latin American blacks not only to other Latin American writers but also to North American literary critics such as Eugene Goodheart and John Gardner, Jackson stresses the universal power of resisting oppression and injustice through the language of humanism.

Southern Writers in the Modern World

Product : Southern Writers in the Modern World
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : One of the most important of the Southern magazines in the 1920s was The Fugitive, a magazine of verse and brief commentaries on literature in general. Among its contributors were John Crowe Ransom, Allen Tate, Robert Penn Warren, Donald Davidson, and Merrill Moore. Publication began in April 1922 and ended in December 1925. Soon thereafter, the Fugitive writers and some others became profoundly concerned with the materialism of American life and its effect upon the South. The group became known as Agrarians. Their thinking and discussion culminated in a symposium, I''ll Take My Stand, published in 1930.In his first two lectures Davidson describes the underlying nature and aims of the Fugitive and Agrarian movements. He brings to the discussion his intimate and thorough knowledge of Southern life and letters. The third lecture deals with the place of the writer in the modern university, posing the questions of whether the writer needs the university and whether the university needs or wants the writer.

Private Participation In Infrastructure In Developing Countries:  Trends, Impacts, And Policy Lessons

Product : Private Participation In Infrastructure In Developing Countries: Trends, Impacts, And Policy Lessons
Category : Books>Business and Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The rapid growth of private participation in infrastructure (PPI) in developing countries during the 1990s was followed by a subsequent decline in investments and the re-negotiation and cancellation of some prominent projects. This has lead to controversy as to the impact and the future of PPI. This report attempts to explain the factors behind the growth and decline of PPI, its impact and the policy lessons that have been learnt from this experience. It concentrates on the experience with the private provision of infrastructure over the last 15 years. 'Private Participation in Infrastructure in Developing Countries' assesses the impact that the private provision of infrastructure has had on service delivery. Finally, this book reviews the main policy lessons that can be drawn, and what governments need to do moving forward if they are to ensure that the supply of infrastructure services does not become an impediment to growth.

Conquest and Catastrophe: Changing Rio Grande Pueblo Settlement Patterns in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries

Product : Conquest and Catastrophe: Changing Rio Grande Pueblo Settlement Patterns in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This book forces a rethinking of our understanding of the Pueblo Indians of New Mexico between the beginning of Spanish exploration in 1540 and the aftermath of revolt and reconquest at the end of the 1600s. Specifically, Pueblo losses of settlements and population are reinterpreted in a masterful synthesis of history, archaeology, and human geography, including discussion of the natural environment based on paleoclimate reconstructions. Barrett shows that the greatest loss of Pueblo settlements occurred in the 1630s when 51 percent of the Rio Grande pueblos were abandoned in the wake of Spanish colonization and mission building that began in 1600. Between 1600 and the revolt of 1680 the number dropped by 62 percent, from 81 to 31 pueblos.By providing the first multifaceted and holistic account of Pueblo settlements in the Rio Grande region over a period of 160 years, Barrett offers a new perspective on the dynamics of Pueblo-Spanish interactions. Spanish exploitation and disruption of the Pueblo economy, Apachean raids, and the impact of droughts are re-assessed. But a major epidemic from 1636-40 likely proved the most crucial factor in the reduction of Pueblo population and settlements. Moreover, the gradual realization of the extent of their losses and grasping what it would mean for their continued existence was probably the most important factor, more than religious or civil persecution, in galvanizing the Pueblo peoples to achieve the unprecedented unity that made possible their successful uprising in 1680. They were unable to sustain this unity when the Spanish returned in 1692 and suffered further losses of pueblos, population, and territory as a result of the reconquest.No serious future work on the Pueblos can be undertaken without reference to this one. The text, simply put, clarifies the entire framework of early Spanish-Indian relations.--Marc Simmons

Holy Intoxication to Drunken Dissipation: Alcohol Among Quichua Speakers in Otavalo, Ecuador

Product : Holy Intoxication to Drunken Dissipation: Alcohol Among Quichua Speakers in Otavalo, Ecuador
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : On the eve of the Spanish conquest of the Inca Empire, peoples throughout the Andes brewed beer from corn and other grains, believing that this alcoholic beverage, called asua, was a gift from the gods, a drink possessing the power to mediate between the human and divine. Consuming asua to intoxication was a sacred tradition that humans and spirits shared, creating reciprocal joy and ties of mutual obligation.When Butler began research in Huaycopungo, Ecuador, in 1977, ceremonial drinking was causing hardship for these Quichua-speaking people. Then, in 1987, a devastating earthquake was interpreted as a message from God to end the ritual obligation to get drunk.Holy Intoxication to Drunken Dissipation examines how the defense of drinking and getting drunk ended abruptly as the people of Otavalo re-evaluated their traditional religious life and their relationship with the wider Ecuadorian society, and defended a renewed traditional indigenous culture with increasing pride. This account presents both the local people''s views of their struggles and a more general analysis of the factors involved, and concludes with thoughts about how their culture will adapt in the future.

Mimbres Archaeology at the NAN Ranch Ruin

Product : Mimbres Archaeology at the NAN Ranch Ruin
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Following two decades of excavations and research at the NAN Ranch Ruin in southwestern New Mexico, Harry Shafer offers new information and interpretations of the rise and disappearance of the ancient Mimbres culture that thrived in the area from about A.D. 600 to 1140. The NAN Ranch site gives evidence of a fascinating restructuring of Mimbres culture and society, owing to the introduction of irrigation agriculture in the late ninth century. The social restructuring that accompanied this shift in technology resulted in changes that are visible in architecture, mortuary practices, and ceramic decoration.The NAN Ranch ruin has yielded the largest body of evidence ever gathered at a single Mimbres site and thus offers the clearest picture to date of who the ancient Mimbrenos were in relation to their Anasazi and Hohokam neighbors to the north and east. Shafer introduces us to the Mimbres people, gives a history of archaeological research in the Mimbres Valley, and traces the occupation of the NAN Ranch site from pithouses to classic pueblo to abandonment. Social customs, subsistence, biological information, and the symbolism of the distinctive Mimbres designs in their ceramics, pottery, stone artifacts, textiles, and jewelry are all addressed in this comprehensive survey.

John Wesley: A Personal Portrait

Product : John Wesley: A Personal Portrait
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : May 2003 is the 300th anniversary of the birth of John Wesley. This is a beautifully written biography intended for a general audience. While not at all hagiographical, the book leads one to admire Wesley immensely. He traveled throughout the British Isles more than anyone in history. Reviled early on during his plein air evangelical crusades, he became deeply loved in old age by all sectors of the population. While the book has a slightly British cast to it (which is unavoidable given the extent of Wesley''s travels throughout Britain), it gives adequate coverage to his period in the American colonies.

Walking with Gospel Women

Product : Walking with Gospel Women
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Imaginative meditation can be a powerful way of attuning ourselves to God''s presence, involving as it does the emotions as well as the mind. This book offers a refreshing and inspiring way into Bible study, using meditative monologues based around many of the women of the gospels. Through a time of guided reflection, we identify with the woman concerned and see what lessons emerge for today as we ponder her story.Each chapter consists of a monologue, linked Bible passage and discussion material designed to draw out deep communication and group fellowship, as well as transformational learning. While designed primarily for small groups meeting to grow their relationships with God and with each other, the monologues can also be used as a way into silent reflection either for individuals or with larger groups (for example, the monologues could be adapted to use in Sunday worship - for intercession, a time of reflection or as part of a sermon).

Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : What is our understanding of Scotland''s spiritual identity? Does it matter? Should it affect the way we make our life-changing personal and national decisions? How does our spiritual identity fit with our ethics, our relationships, the arts, culture, politics and organized religion? How can we build an inspiring future?In this remarkable, page-turning exploration, Donald Smith asks whether the religious question belongs only to the past - or whether it also lies squarely in front of us.

Whether or not readers agree with the sometimes radical conclusions that he reaches, all will find here an enriching depth of clarity, grace and understanding that will lead to greater personal appreciation of the importance of the Christian faith in building an exciting future.In challenging and absorbing style, Donald Smith sets out to help us to unravel the fundamental spiritual dimension of Scottish identity and enables us to confront our national potential - and our demons - as never before.

Progressions Directions and Rectification

Product : Progressions Directions and Rectification
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Using both a practical and a humanistic approach, Zip Dobyns guides the reader through the proven techniques used to rectify a birth chart. The precise methods she outlines to find the correct birth time are easy to follow, and include the use of various methods of planetary and angle progression, solar arc directions, local house cusps, transits, and more. She also discusses less dependable techniques.About destiny, Zip wrote: Materialistic science assumes that destiny (experience) creates character. Materialistic astrology assumes that the planets create both character and destiny. Humanistic astrology assumes that our attitudes and actions (including unconscious desires and habit patterns) create our destiny, that we are born when our character-destiny matches the state of the cosmos, and that the planets offer a useful blueprint of the cosmic order, but do not create it. All approaches agree that internal nature and external circumstances match, so that we can understand one more clearly in the light of the other. They differ in where they place the power: in chance and matter (science), in the planets (materialistic astrology), or in the mind(humanistic astrology).

Economic Sanctions and American Diplomacy

Product : Economic Sanctions and American Diplomacy
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Sanctions don''t work is an often-heard refrain. The reality, though, is more complex. Sanctions - mostly economic but also political and military penalties aimed at states or other entities to alter political and/or military behavior - almost always have consequences, sometimes desirable, at other times unwanted and unexpected. What cannot be disputed is that economic sanctions are increasingly at the center of American foreign policy: to stem the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, promote human rights, discourage aggression, protect the environment, and thwart drug trafficking. Drawing on eight case studies - China, Cuba, Haiti, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, and the former Yugoslavia - this edited volume presents lessons to be learned from recent American use of economic sanctions. It also provides specific guidelines designed to shape future decisions by Congress and the executive branch.

Toward an Understanding of Russia:  New European Perspectives

Product : Toward an Understanding of Russia: New European Perspectives
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : If Russia veers toward instability or a more severe dictatorship under President Vladimir Putin, the threat to its neighbors could be severe. Such a scenario would also present serious challenges for European integration and derail the process of rapprochement with the United States. To understand Russia''s unsteady evolution, the Council on Foreign Relations organized an innovative international conference with analysts from the new democracies of Central and Eastern Europe. The proceedings of that conference, gathered in this volume, provide a unique regional perspective on Russia''s domestic politics, economic development, energy policies, and internal security, as well as Moscow''s foreign policies toward its European and Central Asian neighbors, the European Union, NATO, and the United States. Contributors include Laszls Csaba (Poland), Aleksander Duleba (Slovak Republic), Marko Mihkelson (Estonia), Hryhoriy Nemyria (Ukraine), Katarzyna Pe3czyqska-Ne3jcz (Poland), Marcin Andrzej Piotrowski (Poland), Leonid Polyakov (Ukraine), Laszls Psti (Hungary) Krzysztof Strachota (Poland), Jurgis Vilemas (Lithuania), and Vladimir Votapek (Czech Republic). Janusz Bugaski is director of the Eastern European Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C. He also runs the South-Central Europe area studies program at the Foreign Service Institute, U.S. Department of State.

Description : In these stimulating papers from the Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference in 1985, feminism and Faulkner studies collide, with beneficial results for each.The disruptive and disturbing characterization of women in Faulkner''s fictional world and the influence of actual women in the novelist''s life are given attentive study in these papers. The contributors to this collection consider questions debated for many decades in Faulkner studies and those recently raised to prominence under the illuminating ray of feminist criticism.There is throughout Faulkner something disturbing, Noel Polk observes, about the comprehensiveness with which women in his work are associated with blood and excrement and filth and death.

Conversations With James Thurber

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In Conversations with James Thurber this remarkable man who has been called America''s twentieth-century Mark Twain and who was one of the great talkers of his time expresses his opinions on just about everything and recounts stories and anecdotes about his life which provided the basis for much of his humor writing.These entertaining interviews, conducted by Arthur Miller, Harvey Breit, George Plimpton, Arthur Gelb, and others, span twenty-two years, from 1939--1961. In them Thurber recalls his youth in Columbus, Ohio, his struggles as a student at Ohio State University, and his days of literary and journalistic apprenticeship in Europe as a code clerk and newspaperman who had to recreate entire stories from a few words of coded copy provided by the wire service. He tells too of his early days in New York City when he joined the staff of The New Yorker, of the origins of his drawings, of the pleasures that word games and mental puzzles gave him, and of his increasing blindness and its effect on his work and his perception of the world.As a man who like to express his opinions and to have an audience, Thurber enjoyed interviews and rarely refused to grant them. With the interview format he became so skilled that he perfected the interview-monologue into a Thurberesque art form, the oral equivalent of the autobiographical essay that he refined in his prose.

Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This book offers a new, interpretive way of understanding organizations and policy by analyzing how they convey meaning through symbolic language, objects, and acts. Dvora Yanow argues that contested facts in policy often reflect different policy meanings, which are often expressed tacitly through the symbols use by an implementing organization. Yanow''s interpretation of the policy process extends beyond the field of public policy to examine the way organizations establish identity and an image for themselves, the public, and the world. Her analysis will be of value to those involved in political science, public administration, and organizational studies.

The Child's Changing Consciousness:  The Basis of Pedagogical Practice

Product : The Child's Changing Consciousness: The Basis of Pedagogical Practice
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In these lectures, Rudolf Steiner attempted to describe the development of children's consciousness, how children are different from adults, and how the various stages of their development are different throughout childhood. Piaget later did a number of experiments with children to determine how they perceive and think, and how these faculties develop. However, Steiner had already described the development of these stages of consciousness within children, using imaginative pictures of the human organism to show how four human aspects unfold in stages, each one emerging just as the physical body first emerges into the world from the mother. At each stage of development, Steiner describes what is required of the teacher to facilitate the births of the etheric, astral, and I beings of the child, throughout the school years until adulthood

Education As A Force

Product : Education As A Force
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : These lectures were given one month before the opening of the first Waldorf School in September 1919, in the context of Germany's postwar social ferment. Steiner points to negative tendencies present in modern social life such as inner drowsiness, mechanization, and animalization. A true social solution must not only consider economics and legal rights but also the third element of the free spiritual life. The great problem of the future will be education, he announces, and goes on to explain how only a proper nurturing of imitation, reverence, and love in the three periods of child development can prepare adults who are ripe to live the three virtues of a healthy social order: cultural freedom, legal equality, and economic brotherhood. These ideas are then connected to Steiner's threefold pictures of the human soul, economics, higher knowledge, and physiognomic pedagogy. This new translation also includes three lectures, The Social Basis of Public Education (in German, the Volkspadagogik lectures), available in English for the first time

A Modern Art Of Education

Product : A Modern Art Of Education
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In this fine introduction to Waldorf education, written out of a series of lectures given in 1924, Steiner provides one of the most comprehensive introductions to his pedagogical philosophy, psychology, and practice. Steiner begins by describing the union of science, art, religion and morality, which was the aim of all his work and underlies his concept of education. Against this background, many of the lectures describe a new developmental psychology. On this basis, having established how children's consciousness develops, Steiner discusses how different subjects should be presented so that individuals can grow and flourish inwardly. Only if the child absorbs the right subject in the right way at the right time can the inner freedom so necessary for life in the modern world become second nature.

This startling collection of lectures by Rudolf Steiner, selected and introduced by psychologist Michael Lipson, provides a completely different way of looking at dreams, one based on an understanding of the spiritual nature of the human being. Once we admit that physical existence is just the tip of an iceberg whose mass belongs in the spiritual world, a radically new view of dreams arises: dream as the threshold to spiritual reality.

Shelby knows who he is and what he wants to be and does not let anyone pressure him to be different. One thing that helps Shelby is that he decides ahead of time how he will act when faced with peer pressure. This story is about resisting negative peer pressure and can help to start discussions about how to handle the problem of bullying.

Intercountry Adoption From China:  Examining Cultural Heritage And Other Postadoption Issues

Product : Intercountry Adoption From China: Examining Cultural Heritage And Other Postadoption Issues
Category : Books>Family and Relationships
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Starting with questions about how to incorporate Chinese culture and custom into the lives of their adopted daughters Emily and Claire, the authors began a year-long search for answers. The result is a detailed examination of the post-adoptive views, actions, and experiences of a national sample of families with children from China toward acknowledging their adopted child''s Chinese cultural-heritage and the issues they face together as a multicultural family. Historical and present-day issues affecting intercountry adoptees and their families, such as arguments used to support or oppose intercountry and transracial adoption, developmental delay and the effects of institutionalization on Chinese adoptees, parent-child attachment, discrimination and racial prejudice, and identity development, are detailed. Parents'' beliefs and experiences on these issues are supplemented by a multi-disciplined, comprehensive review of available literature. While occasionally relying on personal experiences, this book is not about the authors'' personal adoption story and parenting experiences. Rather, the focus is on common experiences and reactions of adoptive families who were, for the most part, firmly ensconced in the cultural mainstream but now find themselves viewed differently by society; these parents find that issues of culture, race, and ethnicity have become an important part of their everyday lives. Adoption scholars and professionals, as well as adoptive parents, will benefit from reading Intercountry Adoption from China.

The Gospel of St. John

Product : The Gospel of St. John
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : During Whitsun 1908, seven years after he had given the world the first intimation of the consequences of his turn-of-the-century Christ-experience in Christianity as Mystical Fact, Rudolf Steiner began his great task of renewing humanity''s understanding of the true meaning of the Mystery of Golgotha. Accordingly, he turned to the deepest, most spiritual Gospel: that of the Initiate, St. John. In this lecture cycle, readers will find that the incarnation, death and resurrection of the Divine Word or Logos reveals the mission of the earth to be Love. We learn the secret of the raising of Lazarus, of the Seven Degrees of Initiation, of the I AM sayings. Listening to Rudolf Steiner, we come to understand that the Gospel of St. John is a continuing spiritual presence - to be recalled, meditated, and permeated with one''s life. Doing so, we realize that our task - the task of human beings - is to become ourselves Virgin Sophias, receptive to the Holy Spirit. All of Steiner''s work, as Marie Steiner writes in her introduction, was to pave the way to Christ. Indeed, at the conclusion of these lectures Rudolf Steiner said: It will come to be understood that Christianity is only beginning its influence, and will fulfill its real mission only when it is understood in its true, spiritual form. And he added: The more these lectures are understood in this sense, the better they will be understood as they were intended.

How To Love Your Flute: A Guide To Flutes And Flute Playing, Or How To Play, Choose, And Care For A Flute, Plus Flute Histo

Product : How To Love Your Flute: A Guide To Flutes And Flute Playing, Or How To Play, Choose, And Care For A Flute, Plus Flute Histo
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : A complete guide for anyone who plays the flute or ever wanted to. Use it along with flute lessons or even to teach yourself! This book covers everything you need and more -- selection and care, flute technique, fingering, playing by ear, reading music, flute history, flutes around the world, and modern folk flutes. How to Love Your Flute will appeal to all flutists, from beginning to advanced.////////////////////////////Mark Shepard is the author of How to Love Your Flute, hailed by Paul Horn as a model for our times, as well as the craft guide Simple Flutes. He has played flute professionally in a folk music trio, as a modern dance accompanist, and as a solo theater musician.////////////////////////////Shepard has come up with the most unique flute manual I have ever seen. It is direct, complete, informative on every aspect, and -- most important -- comes from the standpoint of pure love and respect for the instrument. . . . [This] book serves as a model for our times, and it is an inspiration for those who want to get more out of life through the joys of flute playing. -- Paul Horn, from the Preface Shepard''s soul-felt passion for the flute resonates through his book like music. It''s a comprehensive guide with something for everyone, from novice to professional, and so well written that it''s a pleasure just to browse through it. This book inspires. -- Diana Barich, The Next Whole Earth Catalog Comprehensive and concise . . . .

You may be a person who will benefit more from personal instruction than from reading a book. Or you may be the type of person who needs the deadlines of a scheduled lesson to get you to practice. If you are serious about performing classical music, you will want to become absorbed in a tradition that seems imparted best in a teacher/student relationship.There are also advantages to teaching yourself. Money and/or schedule constraints could be factors. You might prefer the freedom of organizing and pacing your own learning process. Or you might even have trouble finding a teacher with whom you work well, or who can teach you the kind of flute playing you want to learn.Whichever way you decide to go, don''t let anyone tell you that you can''t learn the flute without lessons.

From Normal To Healthy:  Paths To The Liberation Of Consciousness

Product : From Normal To Healthy: Paths To The Liberation Of Consciousness
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : I believe that our central problem is that we do not know what or who a human being really is. We lack this knowledge because we have no valid picture of the human WORD, no image of human language, of words in general. This is why we have such trouble with words, why we hit upon the right word so rarely. Everything we do to, for, and against each other is speech of some kind, or ought to be. Yet we are interested in anything but words, these very words by means of which we do everything else. Because we don''t know what words are we don''t know what humans are. -Georg Khlewind How much practical time do we usually devote to the general art of being human? This practical guide to the self-healing of consciousness-it is both a spiritual psychology and a contemporary manual of the inner life-begins by laying out very clearly the unhealthy, unfree nature of today''s consciousness. Methodical self-observation leads to discovering the key to the liberating consciousness from its habitual blind spots and automatisms: the realization of the universal primacy of cognition and the universal availability of its ground, the free attention. Through attention, a person who practices the author''s exercises begins to expand the range of his or her possibilities of understanding and doing. The exercises-based on the Buddha''s Noble Eightfold Path and Rudolf Steiner''s cognitive spiritual path-lead to a new life in which superconscious intuitions gradually take the place of superconscious formations. This new life is a universal human life of improvisatory, living thinking: a life of presence, pure joy, which is health for human beings.

Edgar Allan Poe's San Francisco: Terror Tales of the City

Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Edgar Allan Poe''s San Francisco: Terror Tales of the City is a psychological gothic horror suspense thriller perfectly faithful to the style and tradition of Edgar Allan Poe, set in contemporary San Francisco, in which a hypnotist, Dr. Vincent Valdemar, ostensibly undertakes to condition a writer, Nicolino, to copycat the murderous modus operandi of a notorious serial killer, known as the Scarabus Killer, who stalked San Francisco in times past. Fate unites both characters who coincidentally admire the works of Poe, themes and images of which are liberally interspersed throughout this perversely tantalizing terror tale of Poe, of hypnosis--of the City! What''s real and unreal becomes eerily blurred in a shadowy and murky fog as this surreal brew weaves its way through an ethereal cityscape populated by spectral characters: in this ultimate Poe-pourri.

Description : The latest literary tour-de-force from John Fraser. Three policy experts are at a conference, where their principals are swept away by a storm. One of the experts is held for ransom, but is released in time to join the others as they discuss the new, leaderless, dispensation. They try various strategies to achieve power - the ex-Yugoslav, suspected of war crimes, and possible under-age sexual misdemeanours, proposes infiltrating the bureaucracy, but is unsuccessful. The initiative seems to lie with Melinda, the best-connected expert, who is also an adventurous musician. They consider an incursion into the US, and China - both in crisis, with their populations and resources in disarray. They make various attempts at exploration - the third expert is involved in a complex inner odyssey, and seek inspiration from a young explorer, Niobe, and an academic, Delphine. The group, led by Melinda, eventually decide on an incursion into Southern China, with the aim of securing positions of power in the newly re-organised polity.

The Case

Product : The Case
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The Case is John Fraser''s latest fictional tour de force. It is a novel about loss - loss of memory, of love, of money, of friends. The protagonist searches throughout the book for a suitcase - maybe valuable in itself, maybe because it represents resources and a destination. The Case takes us on a trip through the American dream, of wealth, cowboys and Hollywood movies, and out the other side, to police shootouts, mortal danger and revolution, on a quest for the missing case.''One of the most extraordinary publishing events of the past few years has been the rapid, indeed insistent, appearance of the novels of John Fraser. There are few parallels in literary history to this almost simultaneous and largely belated appearance of a mature ouvre, sprung like Athena from Zeus''s forehead. And the novels in themselves are extraordinary. I can think of nothing much like it in fiction. Fraser maintains a masterfully ironic distance from the extreme conditions in which his characters find themselves. There are strikingly beautiful descriptions, veiled allusions to rooted traditions, unlikely events half-glimpsed, abrupted narratives, surreal but somehow apposite social customs. Like Thomas Pynchon, whom in some way he resembles, Fraser is a deep and serious fantasist, wildly inventive. The reader rides as on a switchback or luge of impetuous attention, with effects flashing by at virtuouso speeds. The characters seem to be unwitting agents of chaos, however much wise reflection the author bestows upon them. They move with shrugging self-assurance through circumstances as richly detailed and as without reliable compass-points as a Chinese scroll.''
